In 2012 I had an opportunity to work with TeatrAlter on music for their 5-part open-air performance in the city of Drohobych; the plot was based on Bruno Schulz’s novel “Spring”.
I had to sign the rights off though, so the final result is not Creative Commons, but all right reserved…
A meditative transition to a pre-awake state…
The chords are built on Messian/Vitry/Machaut isorhythmic principle where one loops pitches (chords in this case) and rhythm, under the condition that the number of pitch steps is different from that of rhythm, so the pitch and rhythm loops go out of sync from each other and produce some variety. In addition there is a very slow transposition loop.

Built in SuperCollider and mixed in Ardour.The main method here is a GrainBuf (granulator in SC) connected to a feedback line. The sound samples are from early 20th century vinyl recordings. Noise-removal function of Audacity was also helpful here.

The voices were cut using SuperCollider’s GrainBuf, and the melody and chords were composed using patters, particularly Pbrown, passed to Yoshimi. Also the melody and chords use the “semitone-tone” Messiaen scale. Other elements were added during mixing in Ardour.
